Prentice says voter deserve clarity from the Alberta NDP on energy pipelines

Progressive Conservative Leader Jim Prentice says voters deserve more clarity on where the Alberta NDP stands on oil pipelines.

GRANDE PRAIRIE — Progressive Conservative Leader Jim Prentice says voters deserve more clarity on where the Alberta NDP stands on oil pipelines.

The incumbent premier says the NDP in other parts of the country are staunchly opposed to pipeline projects that carry Alberta crude.

Prentice says the NDP in B.C. is opposed to the Northern Gateway pipeline, while the NDP government in Manitoba doesn’t like plans for the Energy East project.

Over the weekend, Tories tried to paint NDP Leader Rachel Notley as anti-pipeline for suggesting the controversial Northern Gateway project through B.C. isn’t likely to succeed in the face of stiff opposition along the route.

She also said she wouldn’t be lobbying for the Keystone XL project in the U.S., because its approval is currently caught up in a domestic process that needs to play out.

The NDP in Alberta has said it favours a greater focus on refining crude oil in Alberta rather than shipping raw product to the rest of the world.
